Why Almedalen Week isn’t just for insiders

This week’s Almedalen Festival is often written off as a champagne-fuelled political bubble. But for Bangladeshi campaigner Tawhid Amanullah, it allowed him to get through to people who matter. The article made by Sverige Radio. The link is here below

WPHA at Almedalsveckan 2017

WPHA will be present at Almedalen and our aim will be to reach out to the politicians, media, policy makers and people of important influence in/on the Swedish economy. All of Sweden’s focus will be shifted towards the small Island of Gotland, giving us the best opportunity to discuss the issues directly with the key people who have the ability to change the laws or at least affect the outcome of the upcoming suggested law changes. This makes our short presence in Gotland important for our long term stay in Sweden.

If you can, please do join us. More details will be shared soon.

June 18th, Work Permit Holders Association organized another peaceful protest, which aimed at attracting both media and public attention, and tried to get in touch with Swedsih Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, who was holding a speech at Järva Week political forum 2017. WPHA calls on suspending deportations until new labour bill suggested by the Swedish government comes into power.

 

This is a demonstration made by immigrant workers in Sweden, who are currently receiving deportation orders from the Swedish immigration authorities (Migrationsverket).

Currently, although all parties agree that the deportations are inappropriate and unjust, there’s not much political action done other than basic right-wing vs. left-wing rhetorics.

Struggle of the work-permit holders in Sweden, who are being deported due to employers’ small faults.

 

What we propose

  1. Do not deport taxpayer people who are employed
  2. Give us and the employers the chance to fulfil the requirements, if retrospectively required in the extension of application.
  3. Consider yearly average salary instead of monthly obligation
  4. Regarding the collective agreement, please do not victimise the employees. Instead follow up with the employers and use equal treatment with Swedish citizens.
  5. Acknowledge our contribution and time who are living here in Sweden for several years.
  6. Take necessary steps to decrease waiting times.

About

We strive to gain our rights; our rights to remain living in the country where we lived, and to work in the jobs we have worked at for many years.
